The Jonathan Taylor situation has become tense in Indianapolis, as the star running back seeks an extension commensurate with his value.

However, the Colts are hesitant to offer a long-term deal while he still has a year left on his rookie contract. Taylor has requested a trade, but Colts owner Jim Irsay has no intentions of dealing him.

Despite this stance, if the Colts feel they can't keep Taylor long-term, they might consider listening to trade offers. According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, there is expected to be interest from teams willing to give Taylor the contract he desires.

The Miami Dolphins could be interested in Taylor, as they have shown interest in Dalvin Cook. Taylor's speed would fit well in Miami's offense, but they might be constrained resource-wise to pull off such a move, given their cap space situation.

The New England Patriots, known for adding established talent, could be open to pursuing Taylor. Bill Belichick has a history of bringing in players who have performed well against his team, and Taylor's previous monster game against the Patriots might catch their attention.

The Chicago Bears have the salary-cap space to make a deal, and head coach Matt Eberflus, who previously saw Taylor's impact as the Colts' defensive coordinator, might advocate for the trade. However, the Bears already have a solid RB trio, which could impact their interest in Taylor.

The Arizona Cardinals, looking to build for the future, could see value in adding a young but expensive back like Taylor. James Conner's future in Arizona is uncertain, and Taylor's grinding style could suit a ball-control offense.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could benefit from bolstering their run game, and Taylor's workhorse abilities would be a valuable asset. However, cap space could be a roadblock for the Buccaneers in pursuing a trade.

Overall, Taylor's talent is attractive to many teams, but the trade market will depend on each team's willingness to offer the contract he seeks and their financial constraints. It remains to be seen which teams will actively pursue the talented running back in the coming weeks.
